This slow cooker ginger garlic flank steak is packed with protein and vegetables. The best part is you don’t need to sear the meat beforehand! Just slice everything up, cover with sauce and let it cook!
Cook Time: 6 hours
1.5 - 2lb flank steak
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 cups thinly sliced carrots
1 thinly sliced bell pepper
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
1 - 2 Tbsp hot sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup beef broth
1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
1 package of frozen broccoli, steamed
Thinly slice the flank steak into strips (be sure to slice against the grain).
Place steak strips in a large bowl. Add cornstarch and toss to coat.
Add thinly sliced carrots and bell peppers to the crockpot and add the steak.
In a bowl, combine beef broth, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, tamari, and hot sauce and stir to combine.
Pour the sauce into the crockpot and stir to coat.
Cook on low for 6 hours.
Prior to serving, stir in a bag of cooked, steamed broccoli.
Taste and adjust seasonings. You can add salt, add more hot sauce or even sprinkle with garlic powder for a stronger garlic flavor.
Serve over rice and top with green onions.
You can substitute chicken broth for beef broth.
You can substitute soy sauce for tamari.
If you want to use fresh broccoli, just throw it in for the last hour or so of cooking!
